If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? If you don’t think Heaven nor God exists, you might want to answer by saying something outrageous, just for fun!
If there is a heaven and I get to go there I hope that God will say. “There are some people and animals here who can’t wait to see you.”
What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Whether for me personally or for humanity, in general, I guess feeling that there is no hope that anything will change for the better would be about as bad as things could get.
What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?
I don’t drive and don’t own a car so the only time I am ever alone in any car is if I am waiting for someone who is doing an errand. Generally, I’m thinking I hope that they won’t be long coming back.
How would you rate your memory?
It’s probably average for a person of my age. I write a shopping list and leave it on the kitchen bench, but then I remember most of the things I wrote down anyway. I go into a room and forget why; I forget people’s names, names of songs and names of movies.
I remember the names of all the pets we ever had, favourite toys I had fifty or sixty years ago, my favourite places, favourite times with special people. I think that’s pretty normal.
What’s one song that always cheers you up, no matter how blue you’re feeling?
I’ve got nothing for this but I once read a story, I think it was by Isaac Asimov about a musician who was asked to create a rhythm that would be played to assist in treating people suffering serious depression. He chose “When The Saint’s Go Marchin’ In.”
